The Danny Kyle Open Stage is a celebration of the life of the legendary Scottish singer-songwriter who was a passionate supporter of traditional music and a constant campaigner for its revival in Scotland. The events give local musical talent the chance to go head to head on the Spiegeltent stage.
The Danny Kyle Open Stage will run each night from Friday 11 to Thursday 17 October with acts being given the chance to progress to the final night showcase concert on Friday 18 October in the fantastic Spiegeltent on County Square. Each event will be broadcast live on www.celticmusicradio.net.
Each day at 5pm three successful applicants will take to the stage and be scored by a panel of industry experts. The top three artists are then invited back to a final-night showcase on Friday 18 October and receive a live session on Celtic Music Radio, with the winner also being awarded with a slot at the 2014 Spree festival.
